I heard Carmel sang very well. I also heard their set and some large props weren't finished, so that could be some of it.
I heard Naperville North was VERY solid. Great ballad, closer. Very clean. Great band. Sounded like it was close, but they deserved it. Just VERY interesting to see them improve so much after 6th place at Onalaska!
Wow congrats to Naperville and Center Grove on the top two. I'm sure this competition was rather close with Carmel and Naperville. Anyone have any thoughts on Carmel's show? Curious to hear how they're doing with a gap year, new director, and new choreographer.
